Independent analyst firm The Real Story Group (http://www.realstorygroup.com) has just released a new advisory paper, Assessing Web Content & Experience Management in SharePoint 2013 (http://www.realstorygroup.com/Research/Advisory/Download/169/Assessing-Web-Content-&-Experience-Management-in-SharePoint-2013).
“Despite Microsoft's previous claims of major improvements in web content and experience management capabilities in SharePoint, it has never proven as functional, elegant, or cost-effective as most of the other .NET-based players like Sitecore, EPiServer, Kentico, Telerik, Ektron, or even the open source Umbraco platform — let alone other solutions in the marketplace,” according to Tony Byrne, President of The Real Story Group.
The paper investigates SharePoint 2013’s WCXM capabilities, and the findings indicate that SharePoint 2013 has overcome some traditional weaknesses around content contribution and reuse. The report also examines how SharePoint 2013 handles marketing and experience management and concludes that the platform remains more integrator-friendly than customer-friendly.
Assessing Web Content & Experience Management in SharePoint 2013 is available for $895. Subscribers to Real Story Group’s Web Content & Experience Management research (http://www.realstorygroup.com/Research/CMS) receive the Advisory Paper as part of their subscription.
